First Look Photo: Rarely Seen Animal

November 22, 2017

In Maine, it is said that people can live here their entire lives and never see a rabbit.  The reason for this is simple. Eastern cottontail rabbits, like foxes, are primarily nocturnal. On occasion one might be seen during the day, but that is an extremely rare occurrence.  I found this rabbit on my way into work the other night.

I was hoping to get a 300 mm lens before the egrets left for the season, and it looks like I got that chance.
This is a morning shot of a great egret hunting for food.

There’s no doubt great egrets are beautiful, but with a wingspan of 1.7 meters they look even more amazing.

I don’t usually see ladybugs this early in the Summer, but I saw this one on my way home from work.  I just love the red wings, and white head.

Sometimes the best pictures happen right after a rain storm, so don’t put away the camera when it rains.

Photo Friday: What a Loon

April 7, 2017

Loons spend the Winter in the bays, and coast line, and move to lakes and rivers for nesting during the Spring.  I caught this one right before it moved out of Casco Bay for its fresh water home.
